  • The pass (unique solution) is really too expensive, no possibility to stand only on the mound or vitisiter only the panorama. From the parking (thankfully!) no signage for the entrance to the memorial, similar to the farm of Hougoumont. A shuttle (bus) is available but circulates virtually empty. What use of the screens in the barn of Hougoumont ballet? In short, the old site was more user-friendly.

  • The hamlet of the Hill of the Lion in summer totally refurbished and it is so much better! Finished the disparate buildings without any interest. The pedestrian is a very good idea and allows to avoid places in the flow of vehicles. The Museum is perfectly integrated in the landscape because it is buried. Hospitality is smiling but could give more info on the things included in the price of the ticket (Museum, panorama, Hougoumont, butte). The scenography is airy and very well done. The exhibits are high, but it's a shame that the Museum of the army of the parks have not relocated part of its collections in order to enrich the windows. This museum is worth a visit, that's for sure.

  • To be really passionate to pay such a sum to climb steps and watch movies. Really a scandal. More restaurants have been destroying to compel visitors to consume at the only facility on the site. Mr Kubla demolished a historic heritage... F R I C!
